Code of Practice for Electrical Energy Storage Systems

The purpose of this Code of Practice is to provide a reference to practitioners on the safe, effective and competent application of electrical energy storage systems.

It also provides an understanding of the common terms and operating modes of electrical energy storage systems. Building on the IET’s technical briefing: Electrical Energy Storage: an Introduction this will also provide detailed information on the specification, design, installation, commissioning, operation and maintenance of an energy storage system.
